An official launch of the Brotherhood Social Club was held in Samora Machel on Saturday 8 November.

The club was established in 2014 but was officially launched over the weekend. It is made up of men and women from around the country. It has seven branches with more than 100 members in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Grahamstown, Uitenhage, George, Port Alfred and Kirkwood.

Club members are renowned for their immaculate and top of the range dress sense. The club also strives to restore men’s image and pride.

Club president Mncedisi Sogwanqa said they started the club after seeing all the social ills in their respective communities.

“You find that most young men are disrespectful because they are raised by single parents and do not have a father figure in their lives,” he said.

He said they wanted to help young men to become better adults by playing a father figure role in their lives.

Sogwanqa said they also give hope to unemployed men and those who lost their wives.

“As men we have pride and when a man is supported by their wife they lose self-respect,” he said.

He added they also have taken note of the fact that men are the ones who abuse and kill women and children and they are there to show that not all men are the same.

Sogwanqa said even though the club was formed in 2014 they decided to formalise everything over the weekend.

They also registered the club as a non-profit organisation (NPO).

He said the community of Samora supports what they are doing and always show them love when they have events.

Sogwanqa said they will be helping the poor this December by buying them groceries in a quest to plough back into society and change people’s lives.
